Flip Video

OK, probably everybody and their grandmother (well, maybe not their grandmother) has already heard of the Flip video camera, but I hadn’t until today. One of my students has a father who is a major broadcasting executive, and he was sent one to check out. My student brought it to school. She said, “Hey, Mrs. Huff, you want to see something I think will interest you?”

The Flip video recorder allows users to take up to 30 or 60 minutes of video (depending on the model you purchase) and upload the video directly to Google Video or YouTube. It might work with Teacher Tube, too — I’m just not sure.

I think the Flip video camera will have some interesting applications for education, and if you order three or more from their website, you can get an educator rebate.
